Missing Control Panel in Group Policy, how do I restore?

I'm missing the Control Panel item under the Administrative Templates section of group policy editor.

gpedit.PNG

I'm running on a fresh installation right out the box Windows 8.1 on a laptop and at first, gpedit.msc wasn't found so I had to install that and after installing that, some items are missing.

I've tried to running sfc /scannow and when it finished it just says "Windows Resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them"

How do I get back the Control Panel template in the group policy editor? Thanks in advance.

Run-

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

in admin cmd prompt & restart, then run sfc again.

Read your cbs log & search for - cannot - using Find under Edit tab in Notepad.
If unfixable files are .json files ignore them.

Dism hangs at 20% for a long time.
It will finish sooner or later.

Don't know about control panel. :(

found the problem.

2015-08-01 01:25:43, Info CSI 0000090b [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:20{10}]"gpedit.dll" of Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy-Admin-Gpedit, Version = 6.3.9600.17415, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_INTEL (0), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch

there was more but this is the short version. guess this is why my gpedit.msc isn't working. how do i restore or repair this file manually?

You could try replacing yours with my copy.
Do so at your own risk. :)

Zipped folder with the .dll in it.
It goes in System 32.-

yep. yours has all of the items under admin templates, including control panel which is what i need. after replacing my gpedit.dll with your gpedit.dll, im now missing the admin templates. that was on me though. worth a shot. everything still running fine. i don't know why my fresh windows had so many bad/missing files.
